The most well spoken person in the Mets organization talked to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. He talked about what Memorial Day means to him as an American and a former Marine. He talked about his experience in Vietnam and the different attitude Americans have toward military service now than they did in the 60’s and 70’s.
As expected, Alderson didn’t reveal much about the Mets plan for trades in 2011. He said that they’re still trying to understand what kind of potential the Mets have for this season. Of course, he’s not going to tip his hand this early. So there’s no surprise that he was exceptionally vague.
